TDJ SING-ALONG: RIP TIDE (SICK PUPPIES)

Editorial by Mark I Rasskazov.

This song is part of a series, which I periodically update (when I feel like it), which I call the “TDJ SING-ALONG;” a series of commentaries about songs I find appealing, and which help me illustrate the Transegoist ideology. Sing along if you know the words!

SICK PUPPIES — RIP TIDE

You all hate your children;
They’re too fat to feed.
You’re on medication —
Taking pills to sleep;
I think I’m doing just fine,
Compared to what you’ve been doing.
I won’t get vaccinated;
Insurance costs too much.
You think you’re so persuasive —
But I’m not giving up.
Saving my life:
It’s not what you’re doing.

I!!!

I won’t justify
The way I live my life.
‘Cause I’m the one living it;
Feeling it, tasting it,
And you’re just wasting your time
Trying to throw me a line,
When you’re the one drowning.
I like where I’m at on my back,
Floating down in my own riptide.
The water is fine.

I like to step on cracks;
I go against the odds.
You think my world is flat…
Do I turn you on?
Maybe, yeah, I’m wrong,
But I like where I’m going.
I leave when others stay,
I never re-decide,
I don’t mind if you wait,
But I don’t waste my time!
Crazy is just fine.
‘Cause I like where I’m going.

I remember when it used to be easy.
I remember when it wasn’t so hard.
I remember when it used  to be easy.
I remember when, I remember when…

I don’t know if these guys know the truth, but they certainly have a feel for it.  Does someone think they know better than you how to live your life?  Make sure they know their place.  The corollary to «live and let live,» is «don’t put up with meddlers and power-peddlers.»

HOW THE CENSUS MESHES WITH BANKRUPT TOTALITARIAN SOCIALISM

wikiriwhi-for-HCC-001Article by Tim Wikiriwhi.

Syndicated from Eternal Vigilance.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Mr. Wikiriwhi is a Transegoist sympathizer; not a Transegoist — our syndication of his article does not indicate that he endorses the Transegoist philosophy.

On the reoccurring theme of «What is the proper roll of government?» I submit to you a frank article about the New Zealand census.

Thomas Jefferson wrote “He who governs best governs least.” He penned the American Declaration of Independence, which actually defined what the proper duties of government are: to defend the God given rights of the individual, which is a very limited sphere of operation, which does not include the supply or control of such services as education, hospitals, arts and sports, etc, all of which are the proper sphere of free enterprise and private, voluntary associations.

It is because western society has forgotten such enlightened principles which motivated Jefferson and the founding fathers of America, and instead have adopted a totalitarian socialist conception of government where the prevailing belief is that all of life’s problems have political solutions, as a result of which, Western civilization teeters on the brink of absolute economic collapse and chaos.

Understand the gravity of the situation; the rationale that underpins the so-called justification for having the compulsory census.

tyrannyThe image above is the Cover picture from the Government Facebook page, Census NZ.

This image is case in point as to why the enlightened Kiwi is outraged by the underpinning arguments which Census NZ and the New Zealand government use to vindicate this compulsory violation of our privacy; i.e., that the information gathered will be used to for their «social planning.»

Bread and circuses, anyone?

Notice how this picture appeals to the unthinking: the «Government as the font of all culture; get someone else to pay for it» mentality.  «More drag strips, more skate parks, more gigs and festivals, more sports,» etc., ad nauseum.  Notice that it completely forgets to add: “More taxes, more rates, more debt, more compulsions and property violations, more government poking its nose into things which are not its business to be involved in!»

SCCZEN_A_180410NZHAGV807_460x230Now I like drag strips and concerts as much as anyone, yet I am not so stupid as to believe that these things are only possible via political interventions.  I also know that every time the government or city council builds a stadium or sports facility and events that they always run massively over budget and put us into massive debts, and, ultimately, end up costing rate payers and tax slaves tens of millions of dollars…every…time.

Three examples from my home town of Hamilton will suffice as examples:

The rugby stadium.
The V8 supercars.
The Claudlands event center.

Each of these cost Hamilton ratepayers many tens of millions of dollars over the price the Hamilton city council told ratepayers they would cost!

Via consecutive socialist meddling, the HCC has racked up $500 million in debts!

pigAnd what needs to be appreciated is that this bankrupt situation is the norm across the globe in Western socialist democracies; i.e., socialist politicians are systematically bankrupting their captive populations.  Debts are skyrocketing and rates are going through the roof, yet nobody seems to be waking up to the fact that city councils ought not to be involved in such ventures at all — they are best left to free enterprise and voluntary associations, which are much more realistic about how such things get built and on what scale.  Most importantly, they don’t demand money via compulsory taxations upon the community; i.e., little old ladies living on pensions don’t face rent increases or rates hikes to pay for the white elephants and delusions of grandeur which big mouth, big promising politicians spout at election time to get elected.

If the figures don’t add up, they don’t get built — its as simple as that.  I.e., economic reality prevails; not ridiculous socialist whim.

The sort of people whom support any sort of government involvement in such things are either ignorant, evil, or both.

The ignorant have not figured out that such things will return to haunt them via higher rates, rents, and costs for necessities in goods and services, and the evil don’t give a d@mn [expletive redacted] if people who don’t like rugby, etc., are forced to pay for new stadiums etc.; all they care about is having a flash new place to worship their sporting Gods.  They are too stupid to realize that better stadiums and facilities could be established via legitimate means without the use of draconian powers of compulsion.

Hamilton News points out that the publicly funded Claudland’s Event Center operates under a $1.42 million annual deficit; even as tax payers continue to express outrage of the V8 debacle.

The New Zealand Herald quotes City of Hamilton debt estimates as a result of the V8 debacle as being around $37.4 million, with a total municipal annual debt of around $100 million.

THE BROAD WAY: MORALITY BY VOTE; ARBITRARY SOCIAL LAW

mob-ruleEditorial by Tim Wikiriwhi.

Syndicated from Eternal Vigilance.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Mr. Wikiriwhi is a Transegoist sympathizer; not a Transegoist — our syndication of his article does not indicate that he endorses the Transegoist philosophy.

“Broad is the way that leadeth to destruction and many there be thereon.  Narrow is the way that leadeth to life and few there be that find it.»
—Jesus Christ.

The idea of the «mandate of the majority» in determining what ought to be Law, or how a country ought to be governed is a Pagan/Greek idea.  It is a pseudo-morality which opposes itself to Christian Ideals of Justice.  Why then do so many Christians clamor for more democracy, and less principle and rule of Law?  Why is it that the socialists have been able to substitute the Idea of Majority Rule as being «the rule of law,» when it is no such thing?

Democratic whim is no more a protection of the rights of individuals than the whim of a dictator; the laws generated thereby are absolutely arbitrary!  Why is this truth not taught in ours schools? They don’t teach this because the state does not want the people to slap Constitutional restraints on their power or limit their spheres of operation and intervention.

Labour party Hench woman and Waikato University Propaganda Chief, Margaret Wilson opposed the institution of a Constitution which restrained the powers of parliament. I.e., she opposed the rule of Law, and desired the continuation of Totalitarian socialism. She praised social arbitrary law and mob rule, calling the status quo: “Our wonderfully fluid system!” Remember that she was part of the Labour government who abolished Kiwi’s rights to appeal to Privy Council in England, and established the New Zealand Supreme Court.  This was a socialist coup!

As one of New Zealand’s highest lawyers and legislators (Attorney General), it was in her party’s vested interest to Bamboozle the people of New Zealand to keep her party free to implement their nanny state agenda upon us. These were dark days for unpopular minorities: party pill/NOS bans, Anti-smoking legislations, etc.  Massive handouts to racist radicals, anti-smack legislation, etc. By comparison, John Key’s inept governance looks enlightened!  We don’t see anywhere near as much nanny state legislation being generated.

That many people will look at the list of oppressive socialist laws and think they were all good ideas; that the Nanny State is great, just goes to show that had they lived in Germany in the 1930’s, they would have been raising the one armed salute to the democratically elected socialist tyrant Adolf Hitler.  He was all about «State Health,» «State Education,» «Nationalism,» etc. This is why is is all too common to hear sheeple exclaim… (wait for it…) “Hitler was a genius and had a lot of great Ideas (!).»

be-this-guyThat unchecked Social Democracy is in the process of bankrupting every nation in Western Civilization makes little difference to the vested interests, dependent state-sponsored blood-suckers who now realize they have sucked the life blood out of their neighbors! They clamor against state cost cutting — as if you can get more labor out of dead slaves! The socialist politicians themselves refuse to admit they have ruined their nations. They make ridiculous statements, such as, “austerity will cause a depression,” when the truth is that their largess has already bankrupted us, and that every year that they continued their charade, they simply made things much worse! We stagger beneath massive debts and taxes! Look at Cyprus today! Frozen banks, and the prospect of looting the peoples’ savings! It is difficult for me to feel sorry for them, as the one thing that may be said about democracy is that the majority of people get the government they deserve; i.e., In every Western nation, the resident sheeple have ignored the «doom saying libertarians preaching ‘The End is nigh!’ from their soapboxes.» The greedy sheeple have allowed their governments to lead them to destruction.

WICKED WISDOM

04Article by Barbara Cornell.

Syndicated from Barbara Cornell’s personal blog.

Just checked out Jada Pinkette Smith’s death metal band, Wicked Wisdom. They ain’t fixing to take over Metallica’s market share anytime soon (too bad, really), but they’re not half bad. Even though metal is viewed as an angry, young, white man’s genre, it really is an equal opportunity crowd.

That’s not as true with other genres, which seem to be more comfortable in their own demographic. Yes, there are a few white rappers (Eminem, Vanilla Ice — if he even still counts; his most repeated lyric these days is likely, «Would you like fries with that?» and that’s really it), but mostly they’re black. Yes, there are a few old fart pop singers (Paul McCartney…um…), but mostly they’re barely post pubescent, pimplies. Try being a white blues singer or guitar player, and you’ll find yourself faced with «Who does he think he is? White man trying to be John Lee Hooker. Psht.» And try to sell pop music to the teeny-boppers, the Beliebers, if you’re old and wrinkled…good luck with that.

The metal crowd is as likely to embrace the Killswitch Engages, the Sevendusts, the Within Temptations, the AC/DC’s (I heard Angus and his school boy uniform recently celebrated their Golden Anniversary) among us, as they are the Avenged Sevenfolds, and the Five Finger Death Punches. Black, white, latino, asian, male, female, young, old, gay, straight, christian, satanist, atheist, liberal or conservative, the metal crowd just does not care. Just bring it hard, fast and intense.

EXPANSIONS (KRIS BECKER): THE KIND OF ART MUSIC THE MARKET MIGHT ACCEPT

photoArticle by PJ Cornell.

Syndicated from the Asterisked Music Journal.

Assessment: 9.7 out of 10.

Bottom line up front: For several decades now, the culture of the so called “art music” genre, which, in most cases might more aptly be called “academic music;” the institutional heir of what is known as “classical” music, has been to shun anything which might be construed as being accessible enough to be sold to the general public. This condescending attitude toward the listener has, predictably, led to the decline of art music consumption to an amount approaching zero. Kris Becker (composer and piano virtuoso) is a refreshing exception to this trend. This release abounds with clever quartal harmonies set to jazzy rhythms, and an upbeat attitude that, while sophisticated, does not take itself so seriously as to be a burden to listen to.

Highlights: This album, while being largely consistent in style (as opposed to some of his earlier releases, which were eclectic, to say the least), expresses a very wide range of emotional content, from the pensive Elegy, to the blindingly bright and upbeat Piano Sonata #1. One thing this release is not is boring — at any point in time. The harmonic center tends to shift suddenly, with little warning, and by the time we’ve processed the occurrence, we’re on to something else. The harmonic content, in general, is stable enough to not lose the audience, yet varied, dissonant, and progressive enough to hold the attention of the listener throughout each track.

Criticisms: This album does not break new ground in any revolutionary way; it sounds a lot like some of Barber’s better works — but it certainly displays mastery of the art. Think Hindemith spruced up for the market place. This isn’t even really a criticism; you could say that creating market-acceptable art music is a massive innovation in and of itself.

Conclusion: This is a highly sophisticated and listen-able release that displays a lot of theoretical, compositional, and performance mastery, while avoiding the common pitfall of being out of touch with what people want to hear.

HOW FAIR IS THAT?

8137324Article by Richard Goode.

Syndicated from Eternal Vigilance.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Mr. Goode is a Transegoist sympathizer; not a Transegoist — our syndication of his article does not indicate that he endorses the Transegoist philosophy.

Yesterday I opened a letter from my bank informing me that they had recommenced raping my bank account — at the behest of the IRD. “Fair” enough, I suppose. It’s the IRD’s job to be fair. Why me? I guess I must “owe” them money because I don’t “pay” them anything.

Then I watched BBC World News. I was flabbergasted to learn that the Cypriot government is proposing to rape the bank accounts of literally everyone with an onshore bank account. Luckily, it’s a one-time tax, in which Cypriots stand to lose 7% to 10% of their life savings in one hit, rather than the easy weekly payments I have to contend with. How fair is that?

Robert Tracinski of Real Clear Politics says:

«The news broke over the weekend that in exchange for a bailout — or ‘bail-in,’ whatever that means — of banks in Cyprus, bank deposits would be hit with a one-time ‘wealth tax’ of 7% to 10%, depending on the size of the account. One expert sums up the reaction in the markets: ‘traders and investors are aghast.’ So are depositors, who quickly emptied the island’s cash machines.»

This is one of the biggest bank heists in history, and it is being carried out, not by the crew of charming rogues in your favorite caper flick, but by finance ministers. So it’s an inside job.

For an informed analysis of this latest episode in the Eurozone crisis, read Liberty Scott’s latest post. Scott notes that:

«The Cypriot Parliament, which must vote on this law, wont do so until Friday. Cypriot banks will remain closed until then. Will this trigger panic more widely? What would you do?»

WWJD? (Trick question, Jesus never had a bank account.) To my mind, the proposal is so unthinkable that it’s unthinkable even to propose it. It’s g0dd@mn communism! Let’s hope this proposal isn’t adopted but, even if it’s not, as Scott notes, “the damage is done to Cypriot banking.” Deposit funds into an account with the Bank of Cyprus? Yeah, right.

Lindsay Mitchell has just the right quote:

«Any government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take away everything you have.»

and Queens of the Stone Age have just the right song:

«First it giveth,
Then it taketh away.»
